WeightLoss.org is about empowering you with information and motivation so you can be successful at losing weight on your own! I don’t really approve the surgical methods but I feel it’s important to talk about them so people know the pros and cons of each tactic. Weight loss is a personal thing and no one should tell you how exactly you need to go about it. The way it works is the way you want it to work. If you want to have a less restrictive diet you could do more exercising. If you don’t like exercising you might find more restrictive diets to be a better option.
